# How to Calculate CGPA in Nigerian Universities 2024

In my first year at the University, many classmates and I had no clue about calculating our GPA, let alone CGPA.

I remember how we ran helter-skelter to calculate our Cumulative Grade Point Average for the NNPC/Total Undergraduate Scholarship.

The calculation of CGPA at the University sounded like complex mathematics work.

Some students had to pay senior students for the calculation of their results.

Well, the calculation of CGPA is not a complex mathematics problem. It is easy, and you can do it yourself by following the steps in this post.

In this post, I will be showing you the easy way that you can use to calculate your GPA for your first and second semesters. You will learn how to calculate GPA from CGPA.

Also, you will know how to calculate CGPA in Nigerian Universities like the University of Ibadan, UNN, AAU, UNILAG, NOUN, OAU, UNIPORT, UNILORIN, etc. and other tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

Note that the method for calculating GPA and CGPA in all Nigerian Universities is the same as the procedures here.

First-year and other students will find this post helpful. But first, let me explain the meaning of GPA and CGPA in Nigerian Universities.

Let me know in the comment box if you need clarification. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

The grading system in Nigeria’s tertiary institutions uses over a hundred scores.

Thirty (30) marks are for continuous assessment, while seventy (70) are for examination scores.

Test scores, assignments and class presentations make up your continuous assessment.

Here is the grading system for Nigerian Universities;

## GPA

GPA stands for grade point average. It is the grade point for your first and second-semester results.

You need to know your course score to calculate either semester’s GPA.

Below is a sample of a first-year student’s first and second-semester results at the University.

### First Semester Course Outline

#### First Semester GPA Calculation

##### GPA Formula

The formula for calculating CPA is Quality Point/Credit Unit or Total/Unit

• Unit = Credit Unit
• Total = Quality Point

You will divide the total point by the total number of credit unit loads for the first semester.

• Total Quality Point (TQP) = 63
• Total Credit Uni (TCU) = 19
• GPA = 63/19 = 3.32

From our calculation, the CPA for the first semester is 3.32.

Now let us calculate the GPA for the second semester.

### Second Semester Course Outline

#### Second Semester Result

The table below shows the second-semester result we would use for the calculation.

#### Second Semester GPA Calculation

You will divide the total point by the total number of credit unit loads for the second semester.

• Total Quality Point (TQP) = 51
• Total Credit Uni (TCU) = 15
• GPA = 51/15 = 3.4

From our calculation, the CPA for the first semester is 3.4.

Now, we can calculate the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).

I hope you have understood the calculations up to this point. Let me know in the comment if there is any confusion.

## CGPA

CGPA stands for cumulative grade point average. It is an addition to your first and second semester GPA.

An academic session in the University comprises the first and second semesters.

The formula to calculate the CGPA is the summation of the Total Quality Point (TQP)/Total Credit Unit (TCU) for both semesters of the first year.

CGPA Formula = Σ TQP/TCU

CGPA = Σ TQP/TCU

CGPA = 114 + 34 = 3.35

From our calculation, the CGPA for the first year is 3.35.

Now let us calculate the final CGPA for a four year course.

## Final Year CGPA

The final year CGPA is an addition to your Total Quality Points and Total Credit Unit from the first to your last year.

For this calculation, I will sum the Total Quality Point (TQP) and Total Credit Unit (TCU) for each academic session.

Below is the CGPA of a student from the first year to the final year.

Final CGPA = Σ TQP/TCU

Final CGPA = 487/124 = 3.93

From our calculation, the graduating CGPA is 3.93.

The same procedure applies to students studying a five (5) or six (6) years course at the University.

### Example of CGPA Calculation

To calculate your final CGPA, you need to multiply each semester’s Grade Point Average (GPA) by the credit unit of the course, add up the total grade points earned for all semesters, and divide by the total credit units. The formula is:

CGPA = Total Grade Points / Total Credit Units

Here’s how to calculate your CGPA from 100L to 500L:

1. Multiply the GPA of each semester by the credit units for that semester to get the total grade points earned for that semester.
• For example, for 100L, assuming a total of 30 credit units, the total grade points earned would be:
1.80 GPA x 30 credit units = 54 grade points
• For example, for all five years, the total grade points earned would be:
54 + 45.6 + 95.1 + 92.4 + 94.2 = 381.3 grade points
3. Add up the total credit units for all semesters.
• For example, for all five years, the total credit units would be:
30 + 36 + 38 + 40 + 45 = 189 credit units
4. Divide the total grade points earned by the total credit units to get your final CGPA:
CGPA = 381.3 / 189 = 2.02

Therefore, your final CGPA is 2.02.

1. Hello sir , I just entered my final year, and i have a cgpa of 2.88, is it still possible to graduate with a second class upper, i have just two semester to go, plus I have my Siwes and project that I’ve not done .

pls sir , I’m really sad and I need a sincere answer ,I really want to graduate with a second class upper and kindly share tips on how to meet up sir. thank you

• Hello Zainab,

I understand your concerns and want to assure you that graduating with a second class upper in your final year is still possible, but it will require significant effort and dedication.

Possibility:

A 2.88 CGPA isn’t impossible. With two semesters left, you can potentially raise your overall CGPA to the 3.0-3.49 range for a second class upper.

Challenges:

You haven’t completed your Siwes and project, which require dedication and good performance to earn good grades. These can contribute significantly to your final CGPA.
You only have two semesters left, so consistency and maximizing your performance every step of the way is crucial.

2. My cgpa 2.3 am spill over with two carry over first semester 3 unit and second semester 3 unit and how will I get second class lower

• Achieving a second class lower with a current CGPA of 2.3 and two carry-over courses (one from each semester) requires dedication and strategic planning. Here’s how you can approach it:

1. Dedicate significant time and effort to understanding the carry-over course material. Seek help from professors, teaching assistants, or academic support services if needed.

2. Create a balanced study schedule that allocates sufficient time for both carry-over courses and upcoming subjects.

3. Utilize effective study techniques like active recall, spaced repetition, and practice problems.

3. Good evening sir,in my 100 level I got a CGPA of 4.80,in my 200l I got a CGPA of 4.53 while in my 300level I got a CGPA of 4.35,I’m currently in my final year,sir is it still possible for me to graduate with first class?

• Yes, it is possible for you to graduate with a first class based on the information you’ve provided.

Here’s the breakdown:

Current CGPA:

– 100 Level CGPA: 4.80

– Final Year CGPA (current): 4.35

– Weighted Average CGPA: 4.55 (calculated using total credits earned in each level)

4. Good evening sir,sir in my 100 level I got a CGPA of 4.80,though I’m still on 4 point,and I’m currently in my final year and now I have a gpa of 4 .35,sir is it possible for me to graduate with first class?

• Yes, it is possible for you to graduate with a first class based on the information you’ve provided.

Here’s the breakdown:

Current CGPA:

– 100 Level CGPA: 4.80

– Final Year CGPA (current): 4.35

– Weighted Average CGPA: 4.55 (calculated using total credits earned in each level)

5. Hello,please can someone still graduate with a second class upper after having an extra year.

• Yes, it is still possible to graduate with a second class upper after having an extra year. In fact, it is quite common for students to take an extra year to complete their degree, for a variety of reasons. Some students may need to take an extra year to retake courses that they failed, or to complete additional coursework in order to meet the requirements for their degree. Others may need to take an extra year to complete a research project or to gain work experience in their field.

• I have a cgpa of 2.75
And one more semester to go
The expected grade point for my last semester is 100, if I get 100 , can I make a 2 :1 ?

• Yes, you can make a 2:1 if you get 100 in your last semester.

A 2:1 is a CGPA of 3.00 or higher. To achieve a CGPA of 3.00, you would need to have a total grade point average of 6.00.

Your current CGPA is 2.75, and you have 15 credits left. This means that you need to earn a total of 45 grade points in your last semester in order to achieve a CGPA of 3.00.

If you get 100 in your last semester, you will earn 15 grade points. This means that you would need to earn 30 grade points in your other courses in order to achieve a CGPA of 3.00.

Earning 30 grade points in your other courses would require you to get an average grade of 80% in those courses.

Therefore, if you get 100 in your last semester and an average grade of 80% in your other courses, you will achieve a CGPA of 3.00 or higher.

6. Pls is it possible for me to go to NYSC next year if I have a spill over in first semester

• Yes, Suliat

As long you are not over 30 years.

7. Hey Good morning sir my current cgpa is 3.03 and I’m in my final year I have two carryover one in first semester is a 2 unit course while the other course in second semester is a 3 unit course is possible for me to come out with a 2.1

• Yes, it is possible for you to come out with a 2.1 CGPA if you get a minimum of 3.75 in your final year.

Let’s say you have a total of 120 credit units to graduate. With the 2 carryover courses, you will have a total of 124 credit units to complete.

To get a 2.1 CGPA, you need a total of 261 grade points. Your current CGPA is equivalent to 91.9 grade points. So, you need an additional 169.1 grade points from your final year.

If you get a 3.75 in your final year, you will get a total of 460 grade points. This is more than enough to get a 2.1 CGPA.

8. I’m a masters student. I got 4.42 in course work. How can I increase my cgpa to at least 4.5 using my dissertation? Thank you.

• Here are some things you can do:

1. Choose a topic that you are passionate about. If you are passionate about your topic, you will be more likely to put in the hard work and dedication it takes to write a great dissertation.

2. Start early. Don’t wait until the last minute to start writing your dissertation. Give yourself plenty of time to research your topic, develop your argument, and write your dissertation.

4. Proofread carefully. Before you submit your dissertation, be sure to proofread it carefully for any errors in grammar or spelling.

9. Good morning sir, My current CGPA is 2.7 as a graduating student but I have a carry over course which is a 2 unit course in my final year and I have to borrow courses to make up the 2 unit course to 15 units courses…. Is it possible to get a 2.1 if I have an B’s in this 15 unit course I am currently doing? Before graduating finally

• Sure, it is possible to get a 2.1 CGPA if you have a current CGPA of 2.7, a carry over course of 2 units, and a borrow of 13 units.

To calculate your new CGPA, you would need to add the grade points for the carry over course (2 units * 4 grade points = 8 grade points) and the borrow courses (13 units * 3 grade points = 39 grade points) to your current GPA (2.7 * 15 units = 40.5 grade points) and then divide by the total number of units (15 + 2 + 13 = 30 units). This would give you a new GPA of 2.10.

Here is the calculation:

New CGPA = (8 + 39 + 40.5) / 30 = 2.10

However, it is important to note that this is just a theoretical calculation. The actual CGPA you get will depend on your final grades in all of your courses. So, you need to work hard to get good grades in all of your courses, especially the 15 unit course you are currently doing.

How about if a person has 4.23 in his first year and then happens to have 4.19 in his second year, is there chances of graduating with a first class?
Another issue is that this person is seeing 4.0 as a GPA in his first semester second level and also seeing a 4.19 as a CGPA in his first semester second year, which one is the main CGPA for that level?

• To answer your first question, yes, there is still a chance of graduating with a first class if you have a 4.23 CGPA in your first year and a 4.19 CGPA in your second year. However, it will depend on the number of credit units you have taken and the number of credit units you have left to take.

The general rule of thumb is that you need to maintain a CGPA of 3.5 or higher to graduate with a first class. However, some universities may have different requirements. So, it is best to check with your university’s academic regulations.

As for your second question, the main CGPA for the first semester of your second year is 4.19. This is because CGPA is cumulative, meaning it takes into account all of the previous semesters’ grades. So, even if you got a 4.0 GPA in your first semester of your second year, your overall CGPA will still be 4.19.

I hope this helps!

11. sir, do u think I would be able to do my master’s with 1.97, cuz that was what I got for all y calculation of scores

• Based on your GPA of 1.97, it will be very challenging to get admitted to a master’s program. Most master’s programs have a minimum GPA requirement of 3.0, and some even have a higher requirement.

However, there are some master’s programs that are more lenient with their GPA requirements, especially if you have other strong qualifications, such as work experience, research experience, or letters of recommendation.

It is also important to note that the admissions requirements for master’s programs vary from school to school. So, it is important to research the specific programs you are interested in and their GPA requirements.

12. Is it true that when one rewrites a course and had B, it will no longer be B when calculating it, rather it will become C?

• It depends on the university’s policy on repeated courses. Some universities will replace the first grade with the second grade, while others will average the two grades. In your case, if the university replaces the first grade with the second grade, then your B will become a C when calculating your GPA.

• I have never calculated my result I assumed the result shown have been accumulated is this true.

• Maryann,

Do you mean the result shown on your school portal?

13. Please sir, below are my first year to final year GPA.
Level Units Quality Points
100 43. 132
200. 43. 140
300. 42. 129
400. 44. 111
And I am yet to see two of my final year results( one with 1 credit unit and the other 4 credit unit). Is it possible to graduate with second class upper?

• Divine,

Your current cumulative GPA is 3.49, which is just below the requirement for a second class upper (3.5). To graduate with a second class upper, you need to get at least 86 quality points from the two final year courses.

Assuming that you get an A (quality point of 14) for the 1 credit unit course and a B (quality point of 12) for the 4 credit unit course, you will get a total of 88 quality points from the two courses. This will bring your cumulative GPA to 3.55, which is enough to graduate with a second class upper.

However, there is a risk that you may not get the grades that you need from the final year courses. It is possible that you may get a lower grade than an A or a B. In this case, you may not be able to graduate with a second class upper.

14. How do I calculate my CGPA as a direct entry student (A’level) ?

• Heloo, Toyin

It is same process.

Let me know if you encounter any problem with your calculation.

• Please in calculating my GPA as a Direct entry student, will my A’LEVEL result be used in any way to grade me? If yes, how? Or will the grading start from 200lvl

• No, John

15. Good morning sir please i am lost my way in school my first year was so poor my CGPA was 1.86 what is my hope sir

• Hello Markson I understand that you are feeling lost and discouraged after your first year of school. A CGPA of 1.86 is not ideal, but it is not the end of the world. There are still many things you can do to improve your grades and get back on track.

Here are some tips for finding your way back on track in school:

1. Identify the reasons for your poor grades. Once you know why you are struggling, you can start to develop a plan to improve.

2. Make a commitment to change. If you are serious about improving your grades, you need to make a commitment to change. This means setting goals, making a plan, and sticking to it.

4. Take advantage of resources available to you. There are many resources available to help you succeed in school, such as libraries, online resources, and study groups.

5. Don’t give up. It is important to remember that everyone struggles at some point in their academic career. If you are struggling, don’t give up. Keep working hard and you will eventually succeed.

I hope this helps!

16. My current CGPA is 2.81 as a final year student but I have a carry over course which is a 3 unit course. Is it possible to get a 2.1 if I have an A in this 3 unit course? Before graduating finally

• Sure, it is possible to get a 2.1 CGPA if you have a current CGPA of 2.81 and an A in a 3 unit carryover course. To calculate your new CGPA, you would need to add the grade points for the carryover course (4.0) to your current GPA and then divide by the total number of units (18). This would give you a new GPA of 2.94.

However, it is important to note that this is just a theoretical calculation. In reality, your final CGPA will also depend on the grades you receive in your other courses. If you do well in your other courses, you could potentially get a 2.1 CGPA. However, if you do not do as well, your final CGPA could be lower.

Here is the calculation for your new CGPA:

New GPA = (2.81 * 15 + 4.0 * 3) / 18 = 2.94

As you can see, your new CGPA would be 2.94 if you get an A in the carryover course. This is just a theoretical calculation, but it gives you an idea of what is possible. If you want to get a 2.1 CGPA, you will need to work hard and do well in your other courses.

I hope this helps!

17. Sir in my first year in school my cgpa is 2.56
Is there a probability that I can graduate with first class
Can I still make it

• Yes, it is possible to graduate with a first class if you are currently in your first year with a CGPA of 2.56. However, it will require a lot of hard work and dedication.

Here are a few things you can do to increase your chances of graduating with a first class:

1. Set realistic goals. Don’t expect to get straight As overnight. Start by setting small, achievable goals for yourself, such as getting an A in one class per semester.

2. Meet with your lecturers regularly. Make an effort to get to know your professors and ask them for help when you need it. They can provide you with valuable insights and advice that can help you succeed in your studies.

3. Join study groups. Studying with other students can be a great way to stay motivated and to get help with difficult concepts.

4. Take advantage of tutoring services. If you are struggling in a particular subject, don’t be afraid to seek out tutoring services. A good tutor can help you identify and address the areas where you need improvement.

5. Get involved in extracurricular activities. Participating in extracurricular activities can help you stay well-rounded and can also give you a chance to network with other students and professionals.

6. Take care of yourself. It is important to make time for self-care, such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, and exercising regularly. Taking care of your physical and mental health will help you stay focused and productive.

Graduating with a first class is a challenging but achievable goal. If you are willing to put in the hard work, you can do it!

18. Good Morning. I had a carry over in my first year. I cleared it in my 2nd year. To calculate my Gpa, Would I have to remove the failed one from 100 level or I add both results of the same paper

Here is an example:

1. Suppose you took a course in your 100 level and failed it. The grade for that course will be a 0.0 in your GPA calculation.

2. Suppose you cleared the carryover in your 2nd year and received an A for the course. The grade for that course will be a 4.0 in your GPA calculation.

• Good morning sir please i am lost my way in school my first year was so poor my CGPA was 1.86 what is my hope sir

19. How do I get to know the points which I will multiply with my credit unit

• Goodness,

Check the first table to see how to get the points to multiply to the credit units.

Let me know if you have further questions.

• Sir, I registered 2 unit load and something came up, I could not sit for that exams, would that credit will still be calculated since I did not sit for it.

• Whether or not the credit for your 2-unit load will be calculated in your CGPA since you did not sit for the exam will depend on the policy of your school. At some schools, you will receive a failing grade for the course, which will be factored into your CGPA. At other schools, you may be able to request a withdrawal from the course, which will not affect your CGPA.

Here is what I recommend:

2Explain to your advisor what happened and why you were unable to sit for the exam. If you have any documentation, such as a doctor’s note, be sure to bring it with you.

20. Good evening sir
Sorry for disturbing
In my first year in school I got 3.44 and I don’t know how they will calculate wen I do my course reg for 200level wat do you think I will fall into after dividing my grade and can I make up to second class upper by the time I finish because I have two more years to go

• Hello Tricia,

It is no disturb. I am here to assist you.

Did you fail any course in your 100 level?

You have a good chance of graduating with a 2.1 (second class upper).

21. I don’t understand you man that means the sessional cgpa is not useful.

• You calculate your final CGPA using the CGPA from each academic session with your credit units.

Alternatively, you can start the calculation from scratch using the steps highlighted in this post.

22. Assuming my year one to year 5 help me calculate this cgpa from 100L and 500L
100L CGPA 1.80
200L CGPA 1.52
300L CGPA 3.17
400L CGPA 3.07
500L CGPA 3.14
how do you calculate to get your final CGPA. do you add 1.80 + 1.52+3.17+3.07+3.14 and divide by 5? Please

• To calculate your final CGPA, you need to multiply each semester’s Grade Point Average (GPA) by the credit unit of the course, add up the total grade points earned for all semesters, and divide by the total credit units. The formula is:

CGPA = Total Grade Points / Total Credit Units

Here’s how to calculate your CGPA from 100L to 500L:

1. Multiply the GPA of each semester by the credit units for that semester to get the total grade points earned for that semester. For example, for 100L, assuming a total of 30 credit units, the total grade points earned would be:
1.80 GPA x 30 credit units = 54 grade points

2. Add up the total grade points earned for all semesters. For example, for all five years, the total grade points earned would be:
54 + 45.6 + 95.1 + 92.4 + 94.2 = 381.3 grade points

3. Add up the total credit units for all semesters. For example, for all five years, the total credit units would be:
30 + 36 + 38 + 40 + 45 = 189 credit units

4. Divide the total grade points earned by the total credit units to get your final CGPA:
CGPA = 381.3 / 189 = 2.02

Therefore, your final CGPA is 2.02.

100L CGPA 1.80
200L CGPA 1.52
300L CGPA 3.17
400L CGPA 3.07
500L CGPA 3.14

• Izuchukwu,

How did you arrive at these CGPAs?

You’d need your total quality points and credit units to calculate your final CGPA.

24. My first year to 4year is 3.00CGPA..
Am in my final year (5th year) now is it still possible for me to graduate with 2.1..

• Ify,

Calculate your final CGPA, assuming you get a CGPA of 4.5 in your last year.

See if it will go up to 2.1.

25. How can I make my CGPA 2.00
Am in my final year extension and my CGPA is 1.48

• Hello Cyrill,

All you can do is put in your best in your final year.

• I have a CGPA of 2.68 as at 400l 2nd semester am a futarian I have 2 more semester what’s is the probability of making 2 1

• Hello Pelumi,

The probability of you making a CGPA of 2.1 is very low, unfortunately. Based on the current CGPA and the number of semesters left, you would need to score an average of 3.75 in your remaining courses to achieve a 2.1 CGPA. This is a very challenging feat, and it is unlikely that you will be able to achieve it.

In your case, the probability is:

Probability = -0.116

This means that there is a 11.6% chance of you achieving a 2.1 CGPA.

I know this is not the answer you were hoping for, but I want to be honest with you. It is important to set realistic goals for yourself, and I don’t want you to be disappointed.

However, I do want to encourage you to do your best in your remaining courses. Even if you don’t achieve a 2.1 CGPA, you can still graduate with a good degree. Just focus on doing your best and learning as much as you can.

I wish you all the best in your studies!

• Hello David,

Unfortunately, you cannot a first class with your current CGPA.

33. Hey great article, my gpa is a 2.9 and im just starting my 3rd year, so you think it’s possible to get atleast a 2:1 or first class, what are your thoughts?

• Hello OJ,

You will not be able to make a first class with your current CGPA.

• Sir, I’m on 2.41 in my 300 level, can I make a 2:1 in my final year (400 level)

• It is doubtful.

34. Miracle
Thanks for being detailed it really helful

• Miracle,

35. Please do extra year affect cgpa
If yes how much effect does it have on it

• No

36. And also how is 300 and 400 level academic work like?

• Hello Destiny,

What course are you studying?

37. I got a Cgpa of 3.10 in my first year, currently in my second year
My school uses 44 and below as F and even up till now, I still can’t believe I got a carryover and in a course I never thought I would fail, but I got a 40

I know you get asked this question alot, but do you think a first class is still possible ?

Most people say they party in year 1 but I did not, I guess I failed because I didn’t study hard and effectively enough but I’m a changed person, meaning working better for good grades

It did hurt when I saw an F, but I’m am absolutely fine, like no depression or low self esteem or other psychological whatever, totally okay but it still hurts I failed, is this normal?

• Hello Destiny,

It is nice to hear from you.

What’s the duration of your course of study at the university?

38. I am in my second year first semester of a five years course and my CGPA is 3.50, can I make it to first class in my final year?

• Yes, it is possible.

It depends on your CGPA for the remainder of your stay in school.

You can do the calculations to see the required CGPA to make the first class.

Can the university decided to add like 0.15 to everyone’s CGPA?

• Hello Mattew,

E was introduced as a pass grade but not all universities have implemented it.
No, 0.15 cannot be added to everyone’s grade unless under extreme circumstances.

40. Thanks for the detailed explanation. Good morning please if for example. Your CGPA for your year 1-6 is 2.33 then your year 7 CGPA is 3.40 how do you calculate to get your final CGPA?

• Hello Richard,

You’ll have to add your total quality points for all 7 years and divide it by your total credit unit for all the years to get your CGPA at the end of 7 years.

41. Hi thanks for the detailed explanation. Please how do I calculate my final cgpa if my cgpa from year 1 to 6 is 2.33 and my cgpa for the 7th year is 3.40. Plus how do I get my final overall cgpa for the whole years

42. Hi Blessing,

Well done on the good work of breaking this down. As you said, many people do not understand it.

• Dear Pete,

Thank you for engaging our Post.

43. The calculation you did is for 4years course. If it were to be a 5yrss course. Would it be addition of all cgpa for the 5years divided by 5?

• Yes, Comfort

It would be divided by 5 for a five (5) year course.

44. Wow! This is what I have been looking for . It’s very helpful thanks for update. Cheers

• Hello Masaga,

45. Thanks for this post, it’s really helpful but please, can i still have first class if i did direct entry and started from year two? And how will they calculate my score?

• Yes, Divine.

You can make a first-class as a Direct Entry student.

The only difference is that your CGPA would be divided by three (3) or four (4) depending on the duration of your course.

46. My CGPA from yr 1 to yr 4 1st semester is 4.26
I am currently doing a 5yr program… Can I still make a first class? Or is it too late?

• Vanvicko,

Do the calculations with a CGPA of 5.0 for your final year and fourth year second semester.

Check if it will sum up to a first-class CGPA.

That way you will know your chances.

• To get the Final CGPA, is it the total sum of all semesters ( including first and second) or only second semester?

• Prisca,

It is the total of your CGPA (GPA for the first and second semester) for each academic session divided by the duration of your course of study.

Let me know if you have further questions.

47. Please explain this vividly for us who did direct entry.
I graduated with 2.99 in my ND program and I got admitted through direct entry.
How will my result be calculated.

If I then get 3.5 in my first semester year 2(direct entry) how would my cgpa be calculated adding my previous school CGPA.
Please explain with series of examples. Thanks.

• Hello, Ken

So, your ND result has nothing to do with your result here at the university.

Your result would be calculated like every other student except for the first year.

Let me know if you need further guidance.

• Hello boss I am in 1.89 cgpa in my first semester 300lv plz can I still make it Atlist to 2nd class lower

• It may be possible depending on the CGPA you get in your final year.

• So what will the university give for the first year?will it be divided by 3 instead or it’s an automatic 5.0

• Stella,

You will not have a CGPA for your first year.

48. Will a carryover have thesame grade or less?

• Yes, Ogo

A carryover has the same grade.

• For Someone rewriting a course because of carryover.

The new grade will be replacing the initial one right?

• Harry,

49. If someone had an extension will it affect the calculation of CGPA??? If yes kindly explain how. Thanks

• If by extension you mean an extra year.

Then, it will affect your CGPA in a good way.

An extra year is a good chance to increase your CGPA. This is because you have the opportunity to take extra courses that will boost your CGPA.

Let me know if you have further questions.

• Yes please I will like to talk to you privately, maybe via email. How can that be possible please.

• Alright, Ogo

50. Dear sir,
For a Direct Entry student who got 4.19 in first semester exam in 200level. Is it still possible to graduate with 1st class? what are the chances

• Yes, Freeman

You have a good chance to graduate in a first-class.

51. Good evening.. for example you did direct entry programme and then started university from year 2 after finishing the direct entry programme.. how would you calculate your results

• Hello Abasiubong,

It is the same process for direct entry students.

For example, the final CGPA for DE students studying a four (4) will be Session CGPA/3

52. Can a 3.45 be approximated to 2.1?

• No, James.

2.1 is 3.5 to 4.49.

53. If I have a …
3.0 in my first year
2.98 in my second year
3.55 in my third year, can I graduate with a 4.0 in my fifth year?

• Assuming you get a 5.0 CGPA in your final year.

It would not be up to a 4.0.

54. Can someone with 4.45 in their thirdly year still make first class?

• It is possible if you can get a high CGPA in your final year.

55. Someone who had 100 1.96 CPGA
200 2.59
300 3.28
Not yet done 400 &500 can the person have still have first class

• No, it is not possible.

But the person can make a 2.1 assuming he/she gets 5.0 CGPA in both 400 and 500 levels.

56. Good evening please if for example. You are on a 5 years course and your CGPA for your year 1-4 is 3.34. then your year 5 CGPA is 4.05. how do you calculate to get your final CGPA. do you add 3.34 + 4.05 and divide by 2? Please respond in my email thanks

57. Thanks for being so detailed,it really helped 🙂

• Shemilore,

Cheers.

• Assuming my year one to year 3 cgpa is 2.41
And I got 4.56 gpa in my 400 level first semester… Is there a possibility of making a 2:1 at the end of second semester?

• Tiriti,\

It is unlikely to get a second class.

You could get a second-class lower division with a higher CGPA in your final year.

• Can a student with 4.1 have First class with 2 session remaining?

• Yes, Tim

It is possible, depending on your current CGPA.

You should do a mathematical calculation to determine your chances.
